India set to accelerate innovation with supercomputing components manufacturing: Sanjay Dhotre

NEW DELHI: India is all set to fast-track research and development (R&D) and innovation activities following computational techniques with critical supercomputing components manufacturing locally, Minister of State for Telecom, IT, and HRD Sanjay Dhotre Monday said.

“C-DAC has already established a supercomputing ecosystem at IIT BHU, IIT Kharagpur, IISER Pune, and JNCASR Bangalore. And now accelerating the pace of research and innovation using computational science techniques with manufacturing in India critical supercomputing components like the server board, interconnect, rack power controllers and hydraulic controllers, direct liquid-cooled data center, HPC software stack is a step towards Atmanirbhar Bharat,” Dhotre said.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) was signed between the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) and the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM) for establishing supercomputing infrastructure with assembly and manufacturing in India and critical components at Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore, and multiple Indian Institutes of Technology such as in Kanpur, Roorkee, Hyderabad, Guwahati, Mandi, Gandhinagar, and NIT Trichy, NABI Mohali.

Training in HPC and Artificial Intelligence would be imparted at NSM’s nodal centres at IIT Madras, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Goa and IIT Palakkad, according to the statement.

“Our mission is to establish a dependable and secure exascale ecosystem with innovative designs, disruptive technologies and expert human resource. Our goal is to develop our own indigenous hardware encompassing exascale chip design, and manufacture of exascale server boards, exascale interconnects and storage including silicon photonics at C-DAC in line with Atmanirbhar Bharat to achieve complete self-reliance,” Hemant Darbari, Director General, C-DAC said.
